Slanted

April 1, 2013

A careful reader of the recent AP article about the Center for Sustainable Shale Development should have quickly noticed the gas industry slant of the “news”....

Tedeaux - "All the ills of the world"? The loss of forest cover will result in those impacts mentioned in the article. Your comment is just silly.

Texas - the letter did not criticize the standards, although they are incomplete (I actually read them). The issue remains implementation of those standards and realistic and credible audits by the CSSD.

Energy independence is a laudable goal, but not a sustainable one under current Federal thinking and actions. Compressing natural gas and selling it to overseas markets would make the industry lots of money, but then it won't be available here, and the cost will surely be much higher with this additional demand.

Really lame again bobbie. The government of Germany is helping in green energies while we are busy helping the oil industry. Rather my tax dollars go to green.

oyu are right about the hotels being use for low-income housing after they leave, but from what I seen in my travels is the greedy indians will rent them out to low lifes, drugies, child molesters that need an address for Megans Law purposes and so on., like that dump over on the hill in South Side that Hetner will not shut down!

There are a lot of choices for national news, not so much for local news.

Jerry: 'I am "off" the opinion that reporting the "news" in such a way as to promote an agenda damages the credibility of that reporting medium and promotes mistrust.'

You must love MSNBC then.

As you demonstrated, again, your facts are all wrong.

Therefore, your opinion of the gas industry is worthless.

Grasping straws there bobbie, straight from those right wing publications like Political Outcast. Maybe you should mention the The Pegasus pipeline in Mayflower, AR. or did you miss that one. Maybe we should be like Germany and distance ourselves from fossil fuels

The average residential property values are stagnant and at last check the average per capita income here flirts with the poverty line as rentals go through the roof....at least we will have plenty of low income housing once the hotels are trashed and vacant.

The main thing I see wrong with this letter is all the negative effects said to be created by the gas industry in the last paragraph.

We as human being exsisting today have created these same effects on the environment but thousands of times more than the industry in question.

Anyone here who uses fossil fuels are just as guitly as anyone they are trying to blame.

While you are talking about "facts", why would any leaks, spills or accidents have to be reported when you claim they never happen!

Hey erik, I'm going to say to you what you said to me a few weeks ago, "Your opinion is worthless to me".

Any leak, spill or accident has to be reported to the EPA, DEP and/or OSHA.

Your facts are plain wrong.

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission make the Natural Gas Industry disclose to their Shareholders and Investors lists of possible mishaps.

The lists including leaks, spills, explosions, bodily injury, limited insurance coverage, and death.

Gas drillers disclose these risks to their Shareholders and Investors, but do not tell Landowners of these possible risks, I wonder why?

Some will never support local production of clean, domestic energy by American workers earning above-average wages.

I am still puzzled. When they marched into the area preaching jobs, self regulation and how safe it is. Why this? Since the jobs fell through,it now sounds like they are basically saying we need more regulation. Are they admitting it really isn't that safe? I really do not trust this industry. Great letter by the way.

The CSSD covers multiple states in the Appalachian Basin whereas the DEP just covers PA. It will provide more uniformity and consistency in auditing the standards over a broader geographical area.

Your own analysis indicates the CSSD standards are pretty tough; why not give them a chance before you criticize them!

I don't really understand the necessity for writing this letter other than to continue to beat the environmental drum that the gas development in Pennsylvania is responsible for all.the ills of the world. Nothing new from the environmental folks, same tired,old rhetoric!
